A Girl Plus Horse, Plus A Great Blog To Read!

We're all about sending only the best horse blogs your way, and we recently came across a great one: Girl Plus Horse! Ashley, the writer of the blog, is just 23 years old, but has such a maturity about her, as well as a bright outlook on life. She is strongly dedicated to caring for her first horse, Ella, which she got in January 2010. Ella is a 12 year old Appendix, and was rescued (most likely was a victim of abuse) from Georgia. Ashley is a vibrant Auburn University alum with a degree in Finance, and she currently works in an agency of the federal government, and just loves spending time outside with Ella, as well as her family and friends!

We just love Ashley's blog posts, as they're so full of vibrancy and life. She posts on day-to-day happenings, both in her own life and with Ella. Just as the creative banner on her blog reads "The Process of Learning", Ashley and Ella are both learning more about co-existing together, and learning to love all that life has to offer. We wish Ashley and Ella only the best, and look forward to reading more posts from Girl Plus Horse!

The Story Of The Mustang Gentling Blog

We had the pleasure recently of coming across the Mustang Gentling blog, a blog about the stories of the writer and his wife, who have adopted 27 wild horses! They love to work with horses, train them to ride, and then work to find appropriate homes for them. We're so impressed by this - it's certainly not easy to train a Mustang, however through their care and dedication, these wild horses are able to find great homes who will give them all the care and respect a Mustang deserves.

They also have a 14 year old Kiger stallion that they adopted in 1999, who is their show horse, and they've traveled quite a bit with him! The blog talks all about training Mustangs and the training approach the author of the blog and his wife take, and the great success they've seen. It's truly awe-inspiring to hear how a horse can go from living in the wild to being trained to be a successful riding horse!

The Joy Of Horses, By JennyBean79

JennyBean79, the author behind the Joy of Horses blog, describes herself as a quirky girl and an open book, and has ridden horses just about her entire life! The blog posts she crafts are so much fun to read, and we love all the great details she includes. She notes that she's horseless at the moment, but she still rides as much as she can, which is great - we see so many horse lovers who stop riding horses because of one situation or another, and we say it's always best to just keep on riding, no matter what!

 We love the Joy of Horses blog (and isn't the name of the blog just so great, too!), and we hope JennyBean79 keeps on blogging and telling us about her life, she has great insights and a positive outlook, and we know she'll have a bright future ahead of her, on and off the blogosphere!

Will "R Lil Bit of Cash" Make It To The Show Arena? We Think So!

Another great horse blog we came across is R Lil Bit of Cash, on a mission to make it back into the show ring. The author of the blog showed horses from the time she was 11 "until I had to grow up and get a real job", as she notes on her blog. After getting a job in North Carolina, she bought a horse, Lilly, and mainly did trail riding.

As you can probably guess, it didn't take her long to want to start doing shows again! Her and Lilly have been working together wonderfully, and after Lilly tore her tendon, are striving to get Lilly back to full health and onward in their journey to the ring! It's such an inspiring story - we've seen far too many people give up on their dreams in lieu of "real life", when real life is of course whatever you want to make it! We commend the author of this blog for recognizing her goal and doing what it takes to get there, that's a trait that not just anyone has. Keep it up, and we know you'll get there!

Say Hello To Lazarus!

We get to meet so many different people through both our offline and online travels, and we are happy to have recently come across the Sweet Horses Breath Blog, a blog all about the life of Lazarus the horse. Lazarus is quite the adorable horse, and we just love seeing photos of him and learning about his nature. If you've always wanted to care for your own horse but simply can't due to budget reasons or your geographic location, this is a great blog to read and get a sense of the life of a horse caretaker.

The posts on this blog are so much fun, but the photos really had our eyes glued! The photography is wonderfully done, capturing the emotion of the subjects in that moment. We hope you'll take a look and head on over to the Sweet Horse's Breath blog!

We love Kelly's personality - she's fun, motivated, and just can't stand drama! Her posts are great reading for both the beginner and expert in dressage, or really anyone who loves reading about horses. Kelly's writing is clear and engaging, making us just want to continue reading and reading. We know you'll feel the same as soon as you start reading the great posts at Dressage Pony!

Find What You're Searching For At LiveryStable.net!

We recently came across LiveryStable.net, a horse and horse supplies classified ads site, along with a forum and horse blog! We all lead very busy lives, and we don't always have the time to network with our local community and find the horse needs we're searching for. Livery Stable makes it a cinch to find the horses and supplies you need, at just a click of your mouse!

We also love their Horse Forum and Horse Blog, allowing horse lovers to chat with each other, post what's on their minds, and work together in solving horse issues. Isn't it great when you can chat with someone who loves horses just as much as you do? Their blog has great posts on different shows they attend, as well as posts related to interesting riding anecdotes, such as poems praising horses. We hope you'll visit their site and have a look around!

Getting To Know The California Cowgirl

Vaquerogirl, the lovely blogger behind The California Cowgirl Blog, calls herself a "jill of all trades", and by reading her posts, we can certainly see why! Not only was she organizing a "Crab Feed" in her most recent posts, she loves to write and take photographs...and also loves to ride her horse, Desi, in the beautiful landscape of California (she's certainly lucky!).

 She's been riding nearly since she was born, and loves to read other horse blogs out there, too, finding the posts and perspectives of other horse bloggers interesting and refreshing. Be sure to also visit her Martinez Horseman Association, where the group raises funds for charities and other organizations to help them continue to thrive. It's so inspiring to see that not only does Vaquerogirl love horses, but is always working to better the horse community and world around her!

Reading About Little Sora Story

Little Sora Story is a lovely horse blog about Sora, a charming three year old purebred Bay Arabian filly. Sora is described as both sensitive and proud, as well as very intelligent. Sora's companion, the 24-year old blogger behind the Little Sora Story blog, just knew when she layed eyes on Sora that she was exactly the horse she wanted! Her goal is to compete in Dressage, trail riding, and perhaps jumping with Sora, and we know she'll definitely attain her dreams!

The blog talks about the regular activities of Sora, including quite a few breathtaking pictures of her, and we agree that she is one very pretty horse. It's so refreshing to hear about the love this blogger has for her horse, and it will inspire anyone to get into riding!

Trotting Along With "Now That's a Trot!"

We recently came across the Now That's a Trot! blog, authored by a self-described "horse-crazy Jersey girl" who's dedicated to turning her love of horses into a lucrative career. Ever since her first horseback riding lesson at the age of 11, she's been hooked on horses, and has ridden in many riding styles, including endurance, western, and dressage. Her current love is eventing, and she loves Standardbred horses, particularly the special horse in her life, Willie.

Her posts are full of energy and detail about eventing. It's definitely not just a "trot in the park", and she outlines both the triumphs and hardships that come along with it. We wish her the best, and can't wait to read more about her adventures in the Now That's a Trot! blog!
